A former haveli in Jaisalmer turns into a hotel; opens its doors to public

WelcomHeritage has added one more property to its existing portfolio – WelcomHeritage Kalyan Bhawan in Jaisalmer, which was the former home of the Ruler of Jaisalmer – Maharawal Jawahir Singh ji and was called as ‘Kanwar Pada’, meaning Princes’ Residence in local parlance.

The property features 22 exquisite rooms and has been refurbished in the original art deco style to meet the requirements of the modern traveller and caters to both leisure and business travellers who want to enjoy the local flavors of town.

The former haveli was an old mansion which is now recreated so as to make the property contemporary to the present day times. Along with many recreational services like Roof-Top Dining, traditional Massage Services and Swimming Pool available at the nearby WelcomHeritage Mandir Palace, the hotel offers three unique categories of rooms to choose from.

“This is the 34th operational property of WelcomHeritage and we are extremely happy with the new addition. Out of 34 operational properties, we have now 12 in Rajasthan. This property has its own unique charm and caters to both leisure and business travellers who want to stay within the walled city of Jaisalmer and enjoy the local flavours of the town. Very soon we will be adding few more properties in Rajasthan, South and North-east region. We are looking at adding around 3-4 more properties by the end of this financial year,” said Sanjeev K Nayar, GM, WelcomHeritage.
